Depiction of Tinkerbell, a desert dog. Tinkerbell is a dog who loves to jump in cars and travel. She is currently on a journey, and the artist who produced this work doesn’t know her whereabouts but is hopeful this adventurous dog is happy and safe.
Produced by the Warlukurlangu Artist collective. A template of Trevor was produced, and then an inmate at Alice Springs prison cut the shapes to size. The shapes were then delivered to the Warlukurlangu Art Centre, where they are bent, primed and hand painted by the artists. The Australian Museum is proud to represent art, object, jewellery and accessories from the Warlukurlangu Artists.
This organisation is one of the longest running and must successful Aboriginal-owned arts collectives in Central Australia. Warlukurlangu means 'belonging to fire' in the local language, Warlpiri, and is named after a fire dreaming site west of Yuendumu.
